On Friday, May 11 2007 Jason Wilcox kicked giant steps up Mount Lawson's steep eastern slopes while Wietse and I followed him! I really wanted to get my 10th summit of the year before heading off for a quick spring holiday and I really wanted it to be a 'Kane peak' but with all the snow in the Rockies I knew it wasn't going to be easy to find a peak I hadn't done that would go. Wietse bravely suggested Mount Lawson and I thought it was a great idea. For the past 2 or 3 years, every spring I would try to drum up support to go up this peak while there was still enough snow to kick steps up and glissade down it.
